Consumer Advisory: Dorel Recalls 447,000 Infant Child Restraint Systems

      The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission are alerting consumers of a recall involving certain infant child restraints manufactured by Dorel Juvenile Group under Safety 1st, Cosco, Eddie Bauer and Disney branded names. Consumers should immediately stop using the infant seat carrying handle.

            Dorel is recalling 447,000 seats because when used as an infant carrier, the bolts that attach the child restraint handle to the seat can loosen causing the handle to fully or partially separate from the seat creating a fall hazard.  Consumers should not use the handle until the repair kit has been installed.  The car seat is safe for use in a vehicle as it meets federal safety standards.

            To receive a free repair kit, owners of the affected child restraint models should contact Dorel’s customer service department at 1-866-762-3316 or visit http://www.djgusa.com/safety_notice.

            The affected child restraint models, produced from January 6, 2008 through April 6, 2009, are listed below. The model number and the manufacture date are located on a label on the side of the car seat/carrier.
